As I sit here with my cup of tea reflecting on 2018, I realize just how far we have come since brewing up the hairbrained idea to help bridge the gap between farmers and our local community. Oh my, am I ever so grateful. I am grateful for my friends that brainstormed over cocktails, my husband who encouraged me to take the leap of faith, the farmers that work tirelessly, and the community that has wrapped it's arms around the local food movement.
In this day and age, the struggle to survive is too real for our farms and the struggle to maintain good health is too real for so many in our home state. But last year, thanks to our community, we delivered over 16,000 local, sustainable orders --- providing more than 70 different farmers and artisans with just compensation for their hard work and over 700 families with REAL food.
Be proud! Together, we are making a difference. And it is in this spirit, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your honest support and to wish each day of the new year be filled with health, prosperity, and a ton of LOCAL veggies!
Happy New Year,
Amie & the FPP Team
